Welcome to BlackBerry!
Whether you plan to use your BlackBerry® device
for business or personal productivity, you have
made an excellent choice! With powerful
messaging, voice, web, and organizer features,
BlackBerry is the all-in-one solution that is
designed to keep you connected to the people,
data, and resources that you need every day.
To begin using your BlackBerry device, you must
set up and turn on the device, connect to the
wireless network, and set up for email. You can
also choose to install the BlackBerry Desktop
Software so that you can connect your device to a
computer for data synchronization and charging.
Take a moment to read this guide and any
documents provided by your wireless service
provider. These resources provide important setup
information and are designed to help you get the
most from your BlackBerry device! Additional
resources are listed in the back of this guide.
About SureType
Your BlackBerry device is equipped with SureType™ innovative keyboard technology, which integrates a traditional phone keypad and a familiar
keyboard layout with intuitive software. It “learns”
as you type, recognizing word patterns and enabling you to type information easily.
When you type, the letters on screen change automatically—by the time you’ve finished typing a
word, SureType has probably already figured out
the word you want to type. It's that smart! This
evolutionary technology enables you to easily,
quickly, and accurately type words without having
to get used to an unfamiliar keyboard layout.
See "Type using SureType" on page 15 for more information about typing.

BlackBerry User Tools CD for more information
about using the battery safely.
2.
Slide off the battery cover.
3.
If the battery is inserted, remove it.

“Can I charge my device by connecting it to a
computer?” on page 19 for more information.
Connect to the wireless network
On the device, if the power is off, press the Power
button. Your device should connect to the wireless
network automatically.
To connect to the wireless network successfully,
your wireless service must be active and you must

wireless network coverage chart on the inside
front cover of this guide for more information.

When your device is not connected to the wireless
network, you can continue to use features that do
not require a connection to the wireless network.
For example, you can type and save draft
messages, manage tasks, or use the calculator.

Choosing your email setup option
To begin sending and receiving email messages

Use this option if you have access to a BlackBerry
Enterprise Server® and you want to associate your
device with a corporate Microsoft® Outlook®,
IBM® Lotus Notes®, or Novell® GroupWise® email
account. See "Setting up for email using
BlackBerry Enterprise Server" on page 13 for more
information.

Use this option if you do not have access to a
BlackBerry Enterprise Server and you want to
associate your device with a corporate Microsoft
Outlook (Workgroup Installation) email account
that resides on a Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 or
later. See "What is BlackBerry Desktop
Redirector?" on page 19 for more information.
